MARCUS AURELIUS

“III. I have often wondered how it should come to pass, that every man loving himself best, should more regard other men's opinions concerning himself than his own.

For if any God or grave master standing by, should command any of us to think nothing by himself but what he should presently speak out; no man were able to endure it, though but for one day.

Thus do we fear more what our neighbours will think of us, than what we ourselves.”

Ancient Greek and Roman clothing

Ancient Greeks and Romans wore similar clothes. Women often wove garments for their families from wool or linen. They wove a single square or rectangular piece that could serve multiple uses, such as a garment, blanket, or shroud.

Greco-Roman clothing consisted of two garments: a tunic and a cloak. Both men and women wore sandals, slippers, soft shoes or boots.
